• Today, Minnetonka resident, John Kuhl, officially announces his bid to become our next mayor. His slogans, “Building Better Community” and “All Voices Heard,” concisely express his goals. He hopes to usher in an era of accessibility and engagement for all Minnetonka community members.
• Kuhl, has been a Minnetonka resident for six years, but has a long history of community service and engagement. His experience includes being a Hopkins School Board member, President of the Hopkins Fast Pitch Softball Association, Glen Lake Mighty Mites baseball coach, and a member of Adath Jeshurun Synagogue. In addition, his professional life as a Senior Vice President of Sales for The Moscoe Group is also based in Minnetonka, Minnesota.
• “I am running to be the mayor because everyone who lives, works, and attends schools within our boundaries, should be engaged with our local governing process,” said Kuhl. His campaign seeks to build upon the strong foundation that has enabled Minnetonka to be a community with great public schools, beautiful parks and trails, profitable businesses, and desired housing. However, moving forward, our community needs to make sure all who enter it feel welcomed, represented, and safe and that can only be accomplished by providing inclusive spaces to listen, collaborate, and cultivate new policy ideas and actions.
• Kuhl will begin hosting public forums through Zoom, so that Minnetonka residents can get to know him. The forums will be designed to listen to concerns, to create opportunities for engagement, to gather input, and to inform platform ideas and strategies. The forum topics will include community safety, diversity, equity and inclusion, and how to more meaningfully engage with Minnetonka seniors and youth, as well as topics that are brought up by community residents.

• Kuhl, age 46, lives with his wife of 17+ years, Dr. Michelle Wittcoff Kuhl, two children, Jordan and Zeke, and two dogs, Anna and Moose.
